a lovely dress from the Chronicles of Narnia. It has been duplicated sooo many times.... I want to replicate it someday.
from The Duchess.(it's too bad the movie has objectionable content... the costumes are amazing!)
a dress from the Phantom of the Opera. (I like the dress, but not the movie, even though I haven't seen it.)
Looking at costumes makes me wish that Hollywood had much higher standards of morality.... fortunately, there are costume studies. All of these pics are from http://www.costumersguide.com.
